. we need to know how american consumers fare under current law , on-e context of digital such asransmissions peer-to-peer networks, streaming services, and music downloads. and downloads. additionally we need to know how the competitiveness of u.s. technology can be strengthened in the global marketplace under international treaties to preserve robust protection for creators. in conjunction with the testimony we have received today , this report should provide us with valuable guidance. secondly, the evolution of technology has had a major impact on the debate about copyright protection and has generated many unresolved legal issues. last friday, the supreme court granted sanctuary in a case where the nation's largest television broadcasters had reo, at suit against ae streaming video service. this decision could have a wide ranging impact on internet streaming, cloud computing and the television industry. whatever the outcome of this case, i believe the law must avoid any added consumer ramifications, including higher fees and restricted access. to be clear, moving forwa
signal theft. would these be to our copyright law or communications law? >> thank you. that's an excellent question. the law as it currently stands serve well. as i testified it serves both the public interest and serves broadcasters well. there are current developments that could change that. regulatory proceedings and a number of other court cases. this stand the law is remarkably well. indeed even conceivably joining a new broadcast treaty would not require us to change the law. thus the current statutory scream works well and i'm not aware -- i don't speak on the broadcasters i'm not aware, in fact, of the broadcasters seeking new rights. thank you. >> thank you. you work on copyright issues. what other issues do you believe are of interest to copyright owners? >> thank you. indeed the subject of the hearing is an important one including the making available right. it's important that creators are ability to secure the return on their investment and labor. and that is currently the challenge quite obvious challenge in front of all of us. i any in the long run it needs to
's a fundamental principle of our democracy. the rule of law, that states if we are to be an employer of laws and not of men we must publish government for all to know. because ignorance of the law is no excuse, and an informed citizenry must educate itself on its rights and obligations. that the law has no copyright because it is owned by the people is a principle that has been repeatedly reaffirmed by the courts. despite that principle, my nonprofit has received stern takedown notices for publishing the official codes of georgia, idaho and mississippi. at the federal level the code of federal regulations deliberately and explicitly incorporates by reference public safety codes that become binding law. as joe, the president of the american national standards institute clearly states, a standard that has been incorporated by reference has the force of law, and it should be available. my nonprofit has assembled a collection of 1000 of those public safety laws and we have made them available to the public for the first time on the internet. for that service, three standard bodies are suing us f
to be held without bail. new jersey law does not. this must change. how can we justify exposing our citizens to the risk of violent crime at the hands of those, already in custody, who we know are disposed to commit it? there is no justification for that. let us mirror federal law. pass bail reform now. >> in the past few years, we have made progress in reducing crime in new jersey. over the past decade, violent crime is down 16percent, both across new jersey, and in our 15 largest urban centers. and the state's prison population is down 20percent since 1999. but we can do better, and we must. those 15 urban centers still account for more than half of all the violent crime in new jersey, despite representing only 18percent of the state's population. for too long, camden has been one of the most dangerous cities in new jersey, and in america. the ability to put police on the street was constrained by tight budgets, low morale, and an absentee rate that sometimes reached 30 percent. under an agreement that this administration signed with the city of camden and camden county, we have regionaliz
, again, this is simply a matter of asking law faculty to not be so court-centered in our teaching and to focus instead on the legislative root of most statutory law. but more generally, it's about thinking through a little bit more clearly the connections between law and politics and the, and the symbiotic relationship between the two realms. the demands of professionalism is what we've been talking about. we need to rethink the relationship between the legal academy and the legal profession in a way that, this a way that will serve -- in a way that will serve both. the legal academy, i think, is faulted -- and for the most part i agree with the criticism -- for not paying much attention to the legal profession and for not paying much attention to the professional needs of their, of the students, the future graduates. on the other hand, the legal academy, i think, can also be faulted for not being sufficiently critical of legal profession. so we can't respond to the first problem of inattention by simply servicing the needs of the legal profession. there should be a distance betwe

that no change to the copyright law was necessary because existing law already nablgdz making available right. the federal appellate court arrived at the same conclusion. it's also the case in various international agreement such as wipo and the wipo copyright treaty. think about the making evacuate right is an right to give creators the freedom to economic rights press themselves and more importantly to decide how and when they choose to do gribt and publicly perform their own works. so professors, what if any impact carving out a separate making available right to the copyright act. what effect would have on online theft would explicitly help -- or make the process easier for them to prove the work have been infringed upon. >> thank you, representative. i believe it would streamline the cases instead of having a large federal case about every activity of peer-to-peer sharing, there could be an expeditious proceeding if congress adopted my decision of having small claim court spreadings. -- proceed iings. i think it would be a change streamline the procedure and quick and fair expeditious ju
level. where do we all fit in, how does law fit in? when you get to these great big open constitutional questions, i think that that plays a role. what is the freedom of speech? 14th amendment. equal protection of the laws. no deprivation of life, liberty, or property without the due process of law. by the time they reached the supreme court, there are good arguments of both sides, most of the time. a person's background, how they see the law, how they developed over time, it does have an impact. it cannot be avoided, and i do not think it is wrong. that is one reason why these terms last a long time. different presidents with different views appoint different people. now any president who thinks that he is going to get the decisions he always wants. surely wrong. teddy roosevelt appointed wendell holmes. he ended up deciding in the wrong way in an antitrust case. they may have more luck at a deep philosophical level. even then they do not always get the one they want. san francisco, i was born and grew up in. i lived in cambridge massachusetts an awful lot of times. i have seen a lot o

committee titled circuit court decision on fcc open internet roles is it random or is it a law. such short notice the decision came on tuesday. we've been awaiting it and wanted to do a briefing as close to the decision as possible. this is the congressional internet caucus advisory committee. we take no position on legislation or regulation but the proposition that the internet is extremely important and that we should try to insure a sound decision making so what we try to do in these meetings is any issue that affects the internet, we try to have a balanced perspective. a lot of perspectives on the issue and have a collegial issue on the topic. the so-called net neutrality rules lend itself to that type of debate. hosted in conjunction with the congressional internet caucus and its co-chairs, congressman bob goodlatte, congresswoman eshoo and senator leahy has less senator thune. i applaud the caucus for hosting the dates that pose a variety of perspectives on important issues with which they themselves may not agree so i want to applaud them for that. hash tag for today is #netneutrali
on education in america is higher education and k-12 education comes from it. somebody like to call it sign law. originally propounded as something cannot go on forever. it will stop. and frequently compress even by sign later on. you see a lot of stuff that can't on forever. one thing is the divergence between what people make when they get out of college and what it costs to go to college. ever since the '70s which is about the time the federal government got in the business of subsidizing tuition. we've had a growth in tuition and fees that has been more than double the rate growth and family incomes. that means people have made up the difference with gap. the debt being the form of federally subsidized and guaranteed student loan. before the housing bubble people would take out a home equity loan to finance junior's college. while it probably goes on there's probably less. what does it mean? it means when you graduate from college, you owe at lough money. when you graduate from college and you owe a lot of money. you need a job that pays a lot of money to pay it off. and here is a problem.

on the tonnage clause. you have to understand that the courts are not really there to interpret the law, they do interpret the law, but the reason that the courts are there are because people get into arguments. there are billions and billions of arguments, almost all of them settled. youro not get too angry at friends are going to sit for too long. you work it out. senator kennedy used to tell his staff to go work it out to that is an attitude that we found, but that is what the courts are therefore, when you cannot do that. no country would work if it were that 99.9% of all disagree with or worked out. if there about money, family, or whatever, you go to a lawyer. the lawyer is supposed to work it out. the usually do, but not always. if they cannot, they are in court, and the court gets settlements, a huge number of them. , if they still cannot work it out -- if they still cannot work it out, maybe they will have a trial, and some appeals. of those billions of argument, some will come to us to settle. despite thet disagreement of what the correct answer is to this question, they have worked it

federal law allows for children as young as 12 to work out in the fields an unlimited amount of hours outside of school. in any other industry, kids need to be 16 years old to be able to work. there are some exemptions that allow 14 or 15 year olds, but they are very limited hours they can work and they have to work with their school system. you don't see any of that in agriculture. as long as you're 12, you have your parent with you or some sort of permission from your parent then you're allowed to work an unlimited amount of hours. >> back in 1938, the law was mostly established for children of farm owners. more of a "i'm a farm owner, i have children, it's okay to have my 12 year old, and in many instances, my 10 year old to work in the fields with me." but that was a personal relationship, obviously. now we're looking at children working for someone else, and the law, they fall under that loophole. >> you work pretty hard out there. >> so like we can go more faster and we can leave. because it's hard to cut them and pick them. >> all over the country, children like evelyn put in l
